Track Name: sweet dreams
i’ll be there when the lights go out
goodnight

oh, if you’d let me
i’d walk through your window
my cheek on your pillow

i will leave soon enough
sweet dreams, my love

i’ll be there when the lights go out
goodnight

oh, one and only
my heart is spilling over
my kiss on your shoulder

i will leave soon enough
sweet dreams, my love
Track Name: seeds
born and raised on better days
we’ve had pretty good weather
let’s take a drive all through the night
white lines leading nowhere

sleep in the backseat
lost but on the loose
sunflower seeds and evergreens
fractions of our youth

our money’s made to waste
it’s our time to kill
so we get by on hard times
while we’ve got them still

i’ve got no burdens to barter
say what you will of me
at least i made my decision
who doesn’t want that a little?

bruised and bony knees
blankets on the roof
sunflower seeds and evergreens
fractions of our youth
Track Name: float
after all these lives i’ve lived
i’m still just some fucking kid
hoping no one notices
i just want a piece of it

but when it comes around
i don’t buy it
i can’t escape my doubts
not for lack of trying

after all this time i’ve spent
wishing i was one of them
i have lost my appetite
for that feeling i had then

but when they come around
i can’t hide it
i can’t escape my doubts
not for lack of trying
but when it comes around
i don’t buy it
i can’t escape my doubts
not for lack of trying

i’m so sick of doing the same shit over and over and over
Track Name: caroline
morning rain, the day i thought
of falling off each step
i searched for you through dirt and trees
where they said, said you’d be

father mark, shut your mouth
you don’t have it figured out
i was drunk, it’s not my fault
caroline

i was the one who survived
Track Name: get better
quit your crying
i need you to be strong
you’re a big boy
i’m sorry he’s gone

that night in the kitchen
i didn’t mean what i said
you just wouldn’t listen
you know i love you to death

i’m sorry my baby
i’ll do my best to get better
i know you must hate me
but i’m all you’ve got, we’ve got to stick together

you just look at me like you’ve got something to say
i don’t wanna hear it unless you’re gonna thank me
for all that i’ve done
for taking the blame
for half of your blood
and changing your name
can’t you see i’m trying but it’s always the same
i can’t look at you without seeing his face
if ever you leave
keep it that way
but you’re a smart kid
so i know you’ll stay

i’m sorry my baby
i’ll do my best to get better
i know you must hate me
but i’m all you’ve got, we’ve got to stick together
Track Name: 2-4 (her blue)
great bird is coming down
her blue is running out
it’s running out

someone left this morning
a guy i knew
he was older than me
it was on the news

i’m happy to forget

great bird is coming down
her blue is running out
it’s running out

someone tipped a trailer
on the eighty eight
you will sit in traffic
i don’t think i’ll wait

i’m happy to forget

great bird is coming down
her blue is running out
it’s running out
Track Name: tiny
i can’t help but think about it
sitting in a rented chair
staring out a plastic portal
running on recycled air

you tiny girl
this fiery bird
is yours to ride
into the ground upon a wednesday night

while others fill their minds with fleeting
memories of sun-swept youth
i would close my eyes and wonder
how you’re gonna take the news

you tiny man
where have you been?
where do we stand?
even still i don’t know why i think about it all the time

always waiting
on our changing
for my follies
i’m still sorry

what do we pay for it?

i’ll never make
the same mistakes
for what it’s worth
i still hope that you are happy somewhere in this tiny world
Track Name: don't wanna know
don't bring me your lies when i only live to bring
cherries and wine, humble offerings
know when you go, i will not pry
just come here to me at night and give yourself back to me

i don't wanna know

i keep to myself in your company
with what of my patience is left to comfort me
biting my tongue 'cause i'd rather bleed
than find out if you think of me with someone else around

i don't wanna know

i don't know what you want me to do
i don't blame you
you can have whatever
get what you want 'til you call it over
that must be nice
but you don't know what it's like

you don't know what it's like with this

you don't know what it's like with this love
i grind my teeth 'cause it hurts so much
but i'm not going anywhere
i'm not gonna be alone
